by government through fiscal policy was the real blow-up risk. so if you think of a couple places in the world that we were the most afraid of like europe, i think the actions of the ecb to at least defer the problems with the sovereigns and the bank issues in europe, if they use this time to fix the problems, we'll look back and think it's a good thing. if they deferred them, made them worse in the long term, we won't feel that way. i think something similar has happened in the united states whereby a lot of liquidity has been provided by the central bank. >> andrew, you have operations throughout all of the world. what's your sense of growth? there are troubling reports about growth slowing down which so far have been a very powerful lifeline for global growth as united states and europe weakened, particularly china where you do a lot of business. >> i don't think we're going have an '08/'09 scenario out there for the reasons lloyd was addressed. i do think the world since '08/'09 to now has not gotten to normal. of course, the obvious, which is consumption in the u.s., is not where it was.
but government, federal, state and local cut jobs. government cut a million jobs between 2010 and the middle of 2012. those tend to be middle class type of jobs with benefits. in the past couple of months we've seen that finally come to a halt, and government employment, you know, which people usually don't get too excited about, but that's been a huge detractor from the labor market. the last few months we've actually started to add jobs in government. >> you're right. >> teachers, civil servants, et cetera. i see that as a net positive. >> unless there's a fiscal cliff and you won't be adding government jobs, that's for darn sure. >> let's talk a little bit about the middle, and for the people in the middle, you could argue that the middle class has demand an awful lot over the past 20 or 30 years that sort of led us to this debt problem, led us to this deficit problem. they want homeownership for everybody. we want tax cuts. we want medicare part "d." we want an expansion of safety net programs and then this is what happens. there's no one in the middle to figure out how to pay for all th
does it, his goal is to reduce government spending to 20% of gdp. gdp is the biggest measure of everything we produce in society. he wants to do that by the end 6 his first term. right now government spending is at 25% of gdp. let's shed some more light on what romney's america would look like. kevin hassette is an economic adviser for mitt romney. stevon moore is an editorial writer for "the wall street journal." my good friend christine romans is the host of "your botto line" right here on cnn. folks, no party or ideological spin today, no using the name obama or the term democrat. pain the me a picture of what the world looks like under romney four years from now using specifics. you can't say things like it will be better, we'll be safer, everyone will be richer. tell me exactly what happens, the good and the bad. kevin you're responsible for writing some of the policy. i don't go first. >> yes, thanks, ali. i have to say i agree with your setup exactly. i commend your show for really being one of the only places that's talking about the storm in europe. the fact is the w
the power of the government, they have their own laws and's what they follow. and we have no interference in that. the government has paved wait four the highest form of freedom of most people. you see people criticize, people sometimes trespass the border lines of proper as a president, i'm not middle of the people of iran, without drawing any borders, without drawing any reed red lines, we converse. >> right, but this isn't just any protester, this could be your daughter in the future. she is daughter of your predecessors, the president. it's a fairly significant moment that she has been imprisoned. do you feel uncomfortable that this lady is in jail? >> let's separate the two argument, the two topics. happy this anyone is going to prize in? no. never. no one should go to prison, but also keep in mind that in any country, every one must be treated equally under the laws. no one must have -- or must receive special treatment because of having been a part of the power structure, regardless of whether the action taken resulted in imprisonment is right or wrong. i'm not a judge of that. >>
businesses need the tax incentives to create more jobs, and he says that the government needs to step in and the government needs toinvest in programs now that can pay off later. manufacturing, green energy, instra trui inf infrastructure and aid for state and local governments. mitt romney says to get the government out of the way. and former new york times columnist bob herbert is a ceo of a left leaning think tank, and also joining us is the director irvine institute in irvine. and peter, do you think that the country sees incentives to move the jobs abroad and it does not matter what the government does to help? >> well, that is right if we understand what the problem is here. if you look at what globalization has done over the past few decades, we have a basically a destruction of the job destruction ecosystem, and the way it works, christine, is simple. if caterpillar or gm decides to offshore the production instead of building a factory in peoria or detroit, what you have is a loss of jobs right there of the big company, and then what you lose next is the supply chain which cre
out the accusation, that's like asking the government, how often do you beat your wife? >> i should have had a question mark at the back of it, ali, let's face it, okay? the facts are, ali, no matter how you want to look at this, we had 25 economists polled before this number came out. the average number they expected was about 115,000. not one of them had a number below 8.1. they were republicans and they were democrats. and all of a sudden -- >> i agree with you. >> you agree with that? >> i agree with everything you're saying, jack, and if your question was -- >> i wake up this morning and it's 7.8 with a bunch of asmptions. >> as the best ceo that america has ever had, there are two very powerful things you can say here. one is let's take a look at how the bls, bureau of labor statistics, and the department of labor measures employment, number one. and b, maybe mitt romney should be replacing president obama if he's not doing a good job. but to say there is corruption of somebody cooking these books, why do you do this? for a government in trust of private institutions, that's n
to suggest that the government didn't know what it was doing and could have saved the lives of those men? >> well, ashleigh, it depends who you ask. if you ask democrats, it's the former. this is a political stunt to damage president obama just weeks before the election. but the republican chair of the committee, daniel issa, is saying listen, something went wrong, we need to get to the bottom of this. and indeed you're going to hear today from senior security officials that were posted in benghazi in months leading up to the attack, not on the day of the attack, posted in libya that say, look, we did send messages to the state department asking for additional secity, asking for security teams that were on the ground to be extended beyond their mandate over the summer. and so these requests were apparently either denied or not responded to. and so you'll hear from these security officials, and you'll hear from charlene lamb, a deputy assistant secretary who a lot of these requests went to. and i think a lot of people are wondering why she didn't respond to them, why, perhaps, she denied
's like asking the government how often do you beat your wife. >> i should have had a question mark at the back of it. let's face it, okay? but the facts are, no matter how you want to look at this, we had 25 economists polled before this number came out. the average number they expected was about 115,000. >> yes. >> not one of them had a number below 8.1. there were 8.1, they were republicans and they were democrats and all of a sudden -- >> i agree with you. >> do you agree with that? >> i agree with everything you're saying, jack. your question was -- >> then you wake up in the morning and it's 7.8 with a bunch of assumptions. >> there are two great facts you make. as the best ceo america has ever had, there are two very powerful things you can say here. one is let's take a look at how the bls, bureau of labor statistics and department of labor measures unemployment, number one, and b, maybe you think barack obama's not doing a good job and mitt romney should be replacing him. but to honestly suggest that there's corruption, that the obama campaign may have had something to do wi
. it is time to stop rewarding our friends and punishing our enemies and having the government treat every american the same, which is a foundational principal of the rule of law. and i think mitt romney has to do more of that. has he been specific with his plan? he laid five out in the debate, which is more than the president did. that's why independents thought mitt romney did very, very well. >> let me ask you about one of the issues where they differ, medicare. that is a big deal in florida romney says he supports vouchers for medicare, a plan that is not very popular. how does play in florida with all those seniors? >> right now in florida, you've got about 12 million registered voters. 36% who are republicans, you have 40% who are democrats. and then the 24% or the remainder is going to be the most important percentage in america and i think it's 24% who are not registered republican or democrat. these are going to be the most important voters in the united states. but, let's look at medicare. you have mitt romney who says, i want to give you vouchers, which i personally don't agree
.s. government to get updates, to make sure the families are kept apprised. but you also expect and every department has this. if it's an employee lost, or a member of one of our law enforcement or intelligence service, that agency takes ownership of making sure to shepherd the person through the system and around the system. in many respects, it's sort of incomprehensible to me. these are people -- the family members were identified. they met with senior officials, and it is not as though they don't know where she is. >> initially i thought maybe they were in contact with sean smith's wife, who, i guess, is in the netherlands. but she was at this reception. they clearly talked to her. >> that's right. in fact, often times with a family that's lost someone, there's more than one person. so you'll have the parents of the victim, you may have a spouse, extended family. and it becomes the government' s responsibility to care for that family and keep the family informed. >> jill, you reached out to the state department this evening about what pat is saying what are they saying? >> they are sa
of dollars. also protests of dozens of other cities. labor unions are threatening to strike if the government refuses to allow a general vote on the austerity measures. the protests appeared peaceful. no reports of any violence thankfully. >>> tonight's spacex launch will officially turn space into a business. the resupply mission to the international space mission will launch from cape canaveral, florida. spacex successfully demonstrated it could do the job in may when it docked a capsule with the space station. we'll go live to florida later on this hour. ♪ >>> ll, republican voters in port st. lucie, florida, are turning out in big numbers for their candidate, mitt romney. it's his second straight day up and down the critical swing state, and today he pointed again to one of the key differences between his and president obama's plans. listen. >> if he is re-elected, he will install obama care and with it your premiums are going to go up an extra $2,500 above what they already are in current health care plan. my plan is i will finally get control of the excessive costs in health care by r
'll support the libyan people's efforts to forge a lasting government that represents all of them. and i'll vigorously pursue the terrorists who attacked our consulate in benghazi and killed our fellow americans. >> eli lake has been out on the libya story from the beginning with what the u.s. knew. he joins us once again with increasing information on this. so, i want you to clear up something. you've been reporting today about the militia and some leaders of that militia in benghazi, who were allied with our mission there, but then said we're done with you because you don't like who we support for our new leadership. was that accurate? were they threatening to pull that work away and leave us less protected? >> that's based on the notes of september 11, 2012 cable that was approved by ambassador chris stevens on sort of the benghazi situation overall. it was one of the most interesting bullet points in the three page cable back to washington and i think it shows that in libya right now, there is an effort to try to build serious national security institutions, but those are very early,
and if they can't make up their mind, how can we know for certain that an islamic government is what we really want? >> and so, senator, why did you choose this way? you were very specific in your criticism. it's not just mitt romney. lindsey graham, john mccain have said they're in favor of arming the rebels in syria. had you already tried to talk to mitt romney and he wasn't listening? >> well, we've had a couple of differences and i support governor romney and think he will make a great president, but on foreign policy, i think there's too much agreement between the republicans and democrats. but i think the people are tired of war. when you talk to republicans or democrats now, i think it's almost universal. people want to come home from afghanistan. you know, there's such great sorrow when you think about our same police and soldiers being helped. so i've seen a great movement in recent weeks towards really wanting to come home and i don't want governor romney to think it is a good thing to appear more bellicose. i think there are more republicans and independents who don't necessarily wa
may have the spouse. and it becomes the government's responsibility to keep the family in formed. >> you reached out to the state department what are they saying? >> they are saying since the beginning they have made it a priority to maintain contact. they say in the last 24 hours before the hearing they reached out by phone to at least one member of the family and told them what would be reported at the congressional hearing and they also said that the mother of sean is contacted by us. so, they won't get into a lot of specifics but they maintain that they have been in contact with the families in some way or another since the beginning. >> they are now say that go they will contact mrs. smith. >> yes, they say they will make sure that they are. >> at this point, who are they supposed to believe? >> there have been so many different stories out there and now there is lots of political allegations and we had this hearing today and some saw it as a political hearing. >> you know look, this is really hard. in the first 48 to 72 hours, the first facts are often wrong. the american m
said, render unto caesar and render unto god what is god's. we have government ordained by god. if you look at moses, he was involved in government. if you look at joseph, he was involved in government. all throughout the bible, i mean, in the bible you see strong personalities who were involved in government. it is a right. we must support those things that will provide the quality of life and will provide a standard of living for human beings. so, any time you suppress that, any time you take away that, it has to be demonic and diabolical. >> the last question, i want to talk about policy, aside from politics. and the president endorsed gay marriage as a policy. do you think that will affect the black voter turnout in your congregation and across the country? >> that's an excellent question. as soon as he made that statement as a pastor, as a student of the bible, as one who believes in the word of god. we certainly cannot support gay marriages, but we certainly know that the president is the president for all people. he did not, in fact, legislate gay marriages. so, at the end of th
the movement of small government, i think. because i think a lot of people realize our government is very big. it has become much bigger, and well-thinking moderates in both parties can say we need a smaller footprint of the government. but when the small government movement comes out and just says crazy things like this, it hurts their cause. >> i absolutely agree with you, christine. thanks for clearing that up. stay there. we'll be back to you a little later. >>> steven moore san editorial writer for the wall street journal. steven, i want to talk about the real stuff here, the real meat of this jobs report. before we do that, i think christine's point is very valid, and that is that there is a really reasonable and strong argument for smaller, more effective government in the united states, but these kind of conspiracy theories do nothing to help anybody's cause. >> i don't think there was a conspiracy behind these numbers at all. it's misty fiing, we're a little confused, ali, why there was such a big leap in one of the jobs surveys and a modest gain in the other. a lot of economists lik
for the government to intrude in our resefr. >> a lawyer for the city says the film isn't journalism because it advocates for the five. in a statement the city says if they want an open arg the facts, they should encourage the flim makers not it to hide anything. the filmmaker claim the documentary sticks to the fact. what do you make of the city trying to go after the outtakes? >> they need to stop dragging their feet. they won't find anything other than what we know. that we were innocent, and this is just going to continue to further restate that. >> usef says no matter the outcome, he may never fully escape his nightmare that started in this park. susan candiotti, cnn, new york. >>> president barack obama is in los angeles at this hour. he's there raising cash at a fund-raiser. you may recall he just set a record of $181 million in september. white house correspondent dan lothian is traveling with the president. dan, at this point he's on record to raise almost a billion dollars now, and that's not including those outside super-pacs. how much is he expecting to raise tonight? >> reporter
there right now that's a bigger deal for people over the age of 65 than the future of medicare. government health care program for those people, about 54 million americans rely on it. long-term financial health now is very shaky. the scary part, though, is that each campaign says the other side's plans for dealing with that are terrible. >> obamacaretakes $716 from medicare to spend on obamacare. >> all you seniors, have you been denied choices or lost medicare advantage? >> they haven't put a credible solution on the table. >> their ideas are old and their ideas are bad and they eliminate the guarantee of medicare. >> this is their essential claim, that my opponent will destroy medicare. is that really true? let's take a look at some of the facts and consider it. i'll bring in some tools here. look at the white house plan, to begin with. the landscape they're dealing with. the cost of medicare generally will increase over the next 10 years till it reaches about $1 trillion annually. they want to reduce that by about 10%. that's the orange part here, the part they're cutting out. now, the
or even libya, he says he would work with the government of libya to find the guys that murdered our ambassador. well, obviously that's what the obama administration is doing. >> you have a lot of fodder for your weekend show, so we'll be watching it and also for suzanne malveaux's shows which is up and coming. thank you for taking the time to be on our show today. fareed zakaria, and as i sign off, i do want remind you "newsroom international" starts right now with suzanne malveaux. >> kuhn dem the president for leading from behind, declaring it is time to change -- criticized the obama administration for not having an overall strategy in this region, and here's how he summed it up. the know the president hopes for a safer, freer, aligned middle east with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> now, wolf, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you liste
jobs. it's estimated to create 7 million jobs. we think that government taking 28% of a family and business's income is enough. president obama thinks that the government ought to be able to take as much as 44.8% of a small business's income. look, if you taxed every person in a successful small business making over $250,000 at 100%, it would only run the government for 98 days. if everybody who paid taxes last year doubled their taxes this year, we would still have a $300 billion deficit. you see, there aren't enough rich people and small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. and so the next time you hear them say, don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch out, middle class, the tax bill is coming to you. that's why we're saying we need punishment tax reform. let's look at it this way. 8 out of 10 businesses, they file their taxes as individuals, not corporations. where i come from overseas, which is lake superior, the canadians, they drop their tax rates to 15%. the average tax rate on businesses in the industrialized world
people at home. >> i'll make two points. if you believe as one limited government group said in a press release that there are baghdad bombs in the bureau of labor statistics making up numbers for the regime, if you believe that like some conspiracy theorists do why weren't these numbers better for the past three years and why were the numbers so lackluster the day after the president gave his speech at the dnc taking the wind out of the dnc because the headline the next day was about a jobs number that wasn't very good. it doesn't make any sense. it defies logic. we know these people. we crunch the same numbers these people are crunching. it shows you how disgusting and contentious an election can be. people realize our government is big. it's become much bigger. and well thinking moderates in both parties can say we need a smaller footprint of the government. when the small government movement comes out and says crazy things like this it hurts their cause. >> agree with you. thanks for clearing that up. stay there we'll be back to you. stephen moore is a writer for the "wall street jo
play it. >> spain spends 42% of their total economy on government. we're now spending 42% of our economy on government. i don't want to go down the path to spain. i want to go down the path of growth that puts americans to work with more money coming in because they're working. >> all right. i don't want -- >> no, no. >> i can imagine it would seem offensive. here is the question had it comes to his words versus the president's words. the president, everyone hangs on every syllable or consonant. mitt romney, does he have more latitude or is he under the same microscope over seize? >> he is not under the same microscope. some of the things he's said in the past before that comment about spain, for instance, about the palestinians and how israelis are somehow implying culturally business minded where as the palestinians are not and some of the things he said regarding russia, for instance, that it is america's number one geopolitical foe, and those have been framed in the foreign press and other countries outside of the united states as gaffes by someone who is not experienced in f
, medicare is the government health insurance program mostly for people over the age of 65. about 50 million americans rely on this program and this financial future over the long term doesn't look so good. the scary part is, though, that both campaigns say the other side's plans for dealing with that are just awful. >> obama care takes $716 billion from medicare to spend on obama care. all you seniors out there, have you been denied choices? they haven't put a credible solution on the table. their ideas are old and their ideas are bad and they eliminate the guarantee of medicare. this is their essential claim that my opponent will destroy medicare, but is that really true? let's take a look at some of the facts and i'll bring in tools and look at the white house plan to begin with. this is the landscape they're dealing with. the cost of medicare will generally increase over the next ten years until it reaches about $1 trillion annually. they want to reduce that by about 10%. that's the orange part here. that's the part they're cutting out. now, their opponents look at that and say that's re
throw out an accusation, that's like asking the government how often do you beat your wife? >> i should have had a question mark, at the back of it. let's face it. but the facts are no matter how you want to look at this, we had 25 economists polled before this number came out. the average number they expected was about 115,000. >> yes. >> not one of them had a number below 8.1. >>> tomorrow, three suspected terrorists are expected to make their first court appearance in new york. they were extradited from britain overnight after a legal battle that lasted more than ten years. one suspect has a hook for a hand and has called osama bin laden a hero. the radical cler iic is wanted r several crimes commit against the united nations the '90s. >>> the fbi now thinks that border patrol agent may have died by friendly fire. nicolas ivey was shot and killed in california. initially officials said ivey and his colleague were wounded after responding to a censor. authorities say the only shell casings found at the scene were those belonging to the agents. >> as you know, investigators are made pr
. official announcement coming out next week from the government. 1.5% to 1.7%, it ain't huge. past few years, let's look at that. benefits increased 3.6% this year because inflation was higher. what's coming next year is better than what happened in 2009 and 2010 when checks didn't go up at all. you want to blame congress but you can't blame congress for this minuscule increase coming next year. cost of living adjustment is based on the consumer price index. cpi measures inflation, e price you pay for things like food and clothing and fuel. if prices are up over the past year, those social security checks go up. and if prices haven't moved or they fall, social security checks stay the same. i guess to sort of put the slamation point sla exclamation point on this, at least they're going up a bit instead of staying the same. >> alison kosik, thank you very much. >>> more people around the country getting sick and dying from a rare meningitis outbreak. dr. gupta make ace starting discovery while into digging as to how this happened. hahahaha! hooohooo, hahaha! this is awesome! folks who save hu
. what do you see? >> medicare is a government health care plan, mainly for people over 65, million people are counting on that. as you heard from both campaigns, each side is saying the other side's future plans are terrible. >> obama care, take s 716 billin to take care of obama care. >> seniors, have you been denied choices, lost an advantage. >> they haven't put a credible idea on the table. >> ideas are old, bad and eliminate the guarantee of medicare. >> essentially what they are saying, my opponent will destroy medicare, can that really be true. let's look at the facts and consider what's in front of us. the white house plan and the landscape they are facing. over the next ten years, the cost of medicare is going to gradually ramp up until it's about a trillion dollars a year. the white house and joe biden would like to introduce that by 10%, the orange section in here. that's the part they want to get rid of. now, their opponents say this part you're getting rid of, that's real care. you are hurting people by taking away benefits. no, it's not. these are reductions and fees,
. we've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger. on to taxes. if your ticket is elected, who will pay more and who will pay less in taxes, vice president? >> the mide class will pay less and people making a million dollars will pay slightly more. let me give you one concrete example. the continuation of the bush tax cuts, we're arguing the tax cuts for the wealthy should be allowed to expire. of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy, 800 million -- billion dollars of that goes to people making a minimum of a million d
constituents. when he hits the campaign trail and rails against government spending, his accusations of hypocrisy not only for requests for green pork but also because here's a guy who spent his entire adult life working in government running against government spending. >> how much does this hurt paul ryan? do people understand that distinction? you might not want the stimulus but then when it happens, you got to go fight for your piece of it. does that sell or not? >> in general, i believe the hypocrisy is the unforgiveable sin in politics but this is understandable, because people do get that at the end of the day, part of your job as a congressman isn't just to be a policy wonk, a budget expert, but to fight for the rights of your constituents. that's what paul ryan did. >> last night there was also the exchange about the letters and joe biden said you can write me a letter wherever you want. one of those moments some people hated him for and other people supported him for. you have some of the letters. >> yes. we have four of the letters right here. look, they asked for -- >> ar
now part of an intense is investigation to find the gunmen, the pakistani government, under increasing pressure to solve the case, has given conflicting accounts of the probably, the interior minister says the two men have been identified and arrests are coming soon. the foreign minister says that 100 people were dastopped for questioning, a regional authority says that 35 were in custody, three blame malala yousufzai's shooting on a man linked to the taliban. the taliban claims they plotted the attack, but police say still no hard evidence who pulled the trigger. on friday, the outpouring of support continued with a message from the prime minister. >> and we have to unite and stand together. >> reporter: and vigils across the country, pakistanis, young and old, praying for malala, a 14-year-old human rights activist, whose legend grows by the day. >> she is a little child, gives older people hope and inspiration. and sanity, and brings us back from depression and dejection. >> a top spokesperson said that doctors will keep a close eye on the swelling in malala's brain, swelling, of co
by the chavis government. it has happened already. i know another company was taken over by the chavez government. and the reality is that nobody really knows what is going to happen. so that's something that can be expected in the next six years. >> here is why we care and why we're talking about it. gas, oil, right? let me look down. they're the fourth largest exporter of oil to the united states. one of the top oil producing countries in the world but more than 35% of the population lives below the poverty line. as paula mentioned, economists are worried they could go off the cliff here. she mentioned default in a couple of months. listen to what some economists are saying. >> they have already reached point where the current situation can't continue, a continuation of the current policy framework could culminate in a crisis effectively. >> right now, at least, we need the oil when you hear the precarious situation that is their economy, should we be worried? >> i find the situation very ironic. we, the united states, get about 8% to 9% of the oil from venezuela, a socialist country
